Beverly Clarke is a TechWomen100 winner. Born in Guyana, South America, she did not see a computer until she was twelve, but once she did, she embraced computing and technology and has always been fascinated by the impact that tech has on society. As a child she was an avid reader, enjoying adventure stories such as Asterix, Tintin, Nancy Drew, Hardy boys, Enid Blyton and many more stories!
She is an education consultant, working in computing education, coach and mentor. She is also a former teacher. Beverly regularly writes for adults on different aspects of computing education.
The Digital Adventures of Ava and Chip - Smart City - is her first children's book, with the aim of helping to “make kids smarter” in understanding how technology is impacting upon their lives in an easy-to-understand way. Beverly feels books on technology are an essential item on every school reading list, and that through an understanding of our fast-changing world we will all have brighter futures.
